Abstract:

Present study was undertaken to assess the microbial count in soil under different land use systems in a Mollisol at Norman E. Borlaug Crop Research Centre, G.B. Pant University, Pantnagar. The land use systems were rice–wheat–green gram, rice–pea (vegetable)-maize, rice-potato –okra, rice–berseem + oat + mustard (fodder)-maize + cowpea (fodder), maize–wheat–cowpea, sorghum (fodder)-yellow sarson-black gram, guava + lemon, poplar + turmeric, eucalyptus + turmeric and fallow (uncultivated land). Samples were taken from 0-20cm depth and counts of microorganisms were carried out by using serial dilution pour plate method. Results indicated that soils under agroforestry based systems showed best results with respect to soil biological health followed by field crops, horticultural crops and the uncultivated land.
